New Delhi, Mar 26 (ANI): The Supreme Court on Friday rejected a Public Interest Litigation (PIL), which urged the Central Government to take steps to ensure M F Husain's safe return to India and withdraw all cases pending against him.
The apex court bench headed by Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan rejected the petition, saying Husain has every right to stay in India, but he has to take a decision in this regard
The Supreme Court said it could not direct the Union of India to withdraw the cases as private individuals had filed the complaints.
The judges were hearing the petition filed by Jammu and Kashmir Panthers Party Chief Bhim Singh. He had filed the PIL on February 26. (ANI)
